The Road to WrestleMania has felt especially bumpy in recent years. Work Of Wrestling host Tim Kail wonders why that is, and endeavors to find an answer. His search takes him into the past, beginning at the 1993 Royal Rumble and ending at WrestleMania 17.

What he discovers forever changes his perspective on The Royal Rumble and The Road to WrestleMania.

Topics include:

  • WrestleManias IX - XVII.
  • Royal Rumbles 1993 - 2001.
  • Raw from 1993 - 2001.
  • Vince McMahon's remarkably consistent perspective on professional wrestling.
  • The true purpose of The Royal Rumble.
  • The underlying reason modern WWE feels more random and how that affects today's fan.
  • The true birth of the Mr. McMahon Character.
  • The role fans play in shaping Mania.
  • The need to adapt WWE's booking model to the tastes and purchasing habits of the modern era.
